    Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter was kicked out of the Navy Reserve this year after he tested positive for cocaine, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. A Yale-educated lawyer, the 44-year-old Hunter Biden was commissioned as a Navy ensign May 7, 2013 and assigned as a public affairs officer at a reserve unit in Norfolk, Va., the Journal reported. But just a month later when he checked into his new unit in June and was given a drug test, he popped for cocaine.

"In the last ten years, average salary of the middle class in America according to Standard & Poor's has gone up 14 cents." Biden's event was "on the Importance of Investing in our Nation's Infrastructure," according to the White House. VIDEO AT LINK.................

    Vice President Joe Biden is suffering from a serious case of job lock. How else to explain his public dissatisfaction with the job of playing straight man to a president who treats him like a White House butler? Maybe, since he does not need the job to be covered by Obamacare, the vice president might be better off quitting and devoting his time to writing poetry. That is what Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader, suggested following release of the Congressional Budget Office report that said Obamacare will cost the nation some 2.5 million full time jobs, but that these...

Losing your family in an auto accident is a gut wrenching tragedy, to be sure. No one underestimates that and no ever blamed Mrs. Biden for the accident. Right up there with despicable things one human can do to another, is falsely accusing the innocent of a crime. “Bearing false witness” is even in the 10 commandments, but Mr. Biden’s feigned Catholicism doesn’t let that stop him.

    I'm amazed that the president got away with blaming Bush for so long. In one respect I agree with him. The reason why Romney lost tonight is Bush's fault. Bush knew in 2006 that his VP Dick Cheney would not run for president. There would be no heir apparent. He handed over the process to the GOP, who promptly tried to push Rudy McRomney onto the electorate. Rudy was dispensed with, way too liberal. McCain was given his chance... yikes, what a crappy candidate. And then Romney was given his chance. All of them were losers. And it's all Bush's...

    While the pundits may dismiss Vice President Joe Biden’s pained expressions and hyperbolic claims as just “Joe being Joe,” there is ample reason for voters of all stripes to be concerned with claims last week. With an electorate so distrusting of Washington (and rightfully so), Joe Biden did absolutely nothing to instill confidence that the next four years will be better than the last. There is one line, buried at the end of a rambling answer, which not only defined the Vice President’s debate strategy, but also his belief that his folksy, blue-collar personality gives him license to send facts...

    Gallup is reporting that Mitt Romney has received a five-point bounce from his trouncing of the President in last week’s debate, with the race tied at 47-47. The race is a dead heat, and, just like the MLB playoffs happening in Washington for the first time in decades, every single play now counts. This week, Vice-President Biden will face Congressman Paul Ryan in the Vice Presidential Debate.

    Joe Biden's gaffes are famous, not just for the self-inflicted foot swallowing that he is most known for, but also for the liberal media's obvious ignorance and non reporting of those said numerous gaffes. Its just the same as when Franklin Delano Roosevelt's crippling polio paralysis was hidden from the American public - as FDR's staff members would prop him up into a standing position - just to show how able-bodied he was.

    The selection of Rep. Paul Ryan to be Gov. Mitt Romney's running mate was an excellent choice. Nevertheless, the press corps happily bought into the Obama campaign's early response that, as the Washington Post's Dan Balz wrote:"There was no one on Romney's short list of contenders they wanted to run against more than the chairman of the House Budget Committee." The great thing about that statement is: It would have worked no matter whom Romney had picked. In this age of everything anyone has ever said or even thought about anything being available instantaneously on-line, there is no such thing...

The theme of the announcement was focused heavily on protecting and restoring the American Dream. “It’s an honor to announce my running mate and the next [vice] president of the United States, Paul Ryan,” Romney said in front of a roaring crowd waving American flags.

    Condoleezza Rice has, in my estimation, served this country with distinction. First, as a member of the National Security Council during the presidency of George Herbert Walker Bush. Then, as Secretary of State, during the presidency of George Walker Bush. A FOX News poll released yesterday said that Rice is the top choice of the Republican faithful to be the ticketmate of Mitt Romney, the party’s presumptive presidential nominee. But she is not the top choice of this social conservative; this long-time Republican. That’s because Condi supports abortion “rights.” And, frankly, because the 58-year-old has never been married; never had...

    Washington (CNN) – South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said Thursday the leading Republican presidential candidate was carrying a "golden bullet" to connect with women voters.

Conclusion: Support Rick Santorum with your VOTE...

    Sarah Palin suggested it and, now, Allen West says he’d consider it. On Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien this morning, the Florida Republican Congressman recounted his unexpected and relatively quick journey to his present position of prominence and said he’d be equally willing to take on a vice presidential run...
